64 Channel Apogee Card Available


Apogee Electronics have announced that the Symphony 64 is now shipping worldwide to authorized dealers and distributors. Symphony 64 is a 64 channel, 24bit/192kHz PCI Express card made to interface Apogee's X-Series and Rosetta Series converters directly to Apple's Mac Pro creating The Symphony System.
Apogee say that the Symphony System excels on several levels; the award-winning sound quality of Apogee's AD&DA Converters, the groundbreaking power of Apple's Mac Pro, and the stability and ultra low latency performance of the Symphony 64 card. They believe that this combination provides a flexible, stable, high-end solution for customers seeking a workstation compatible with any Core Audio application.
Symphony 64 features Extended Audio Routing with VBus and SBus technology. VBus allows users to route demanding, stand-alone software instruments, directly between Core Audio based applications, instead of running them as plug-ins. Symphony's SBus doubles the DSP power of The Symphony System by facilitating the communication of digital audio between Symphony equipped Macs with a single cable. Now it is possible to route audio to a second computer and back again for plug-in processing, sample libraries, soft-synth players, and session transfers from one Core Audio application to another.
Symphony 64 at a glance:
  • 64 channels of 24-bit 192kHz Digital I/O per card
  • Up to 128 channels of I/O per Mac Pro
  • Near zero latency performance
  • Connects directly to Apogee's X-Series and Rosetta Series converters via the X-Symphony option card
  • Apogee's VBus - virtual routing within a Core Audio application or between multiple applications.
